GREAT PRODUCT-B&H PICKS GOOD STUFF

  • Excerpt: The TX-8050 shows itself as a quality product right out of the box. It has a great look. And more imortantly than just being pretty, is that, it provides great sound! It is intutive and feels solid. It can take 2 optical cables; this is the prefered way to connect a CD player. However, the optical cable does not work with zone 2.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Has 2 Zones, Intuitive Controls, Onkyo Has Usa Tech Help, Takes 2 Optical Cables, Tech Help Is 24 Hours, Tech Help Is Friendly

Great bargain

Rick P., Newegg

  • Summary: I am very happy with this product.
  • Pros: Very easy set-up, great sound with my JBL outdoor speakers. I am probably under-tasking this device as I am only using it to play itunes/ipod and internet radio on two speakers, and it can certainly do much more. I am very pleased with how quickly I was able to pull up my Pandora stations, and using the USB port for ipod was very simple.
  • Cons: The interface via the remote can be a bit tedious and cumbersome. It would be great if there were a way to program the receiver with favorites and such once it was on your network with some software.

  • Excerpt: This receiver was recommended by my "geek" friend who knew what I needed for my new HD TV and other components. I also wanted the A/B speaker option so I can hear music and TV when on my screened porch and this fit the bill. I am very happy with it!
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls

Performs Per Specs

The Reaper, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: For a lower priced receiver this receiver performs as advertised. While lacking an equalizer, the treble/bass controls provide a bit of boost toward the top and bottom of the audible frequencies. The sound is crisp and not muddy. The A-B speaker configuration allow two speakers to be placed in the front and two speakers in the rear resulting is a more "surround sound" feeling.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Good Remote
  • Cons: Hard To See Controls

  • Summary: Excellent FM reception pull in a lot of stations. This receiver has plenty of good power. Very disappointed with another brand I bought because it sounded cheap and needed an external FM antenna. I learned my lesson. Love this receiver for old school setup!

Love it

Jeffrey M. Hersk "Jeff_NC", Amazon

  • Summary: I am annoyed by reviews that pan every digital device for not being an iphone. This is a stereo receiver and a good one. It's a big plus that you can listen to Internet radio. The setup for internet radio is cumbersome, but you only have to do it once. My stereo is far from my computer and router, so I bought a device called an internet bridge so that the stereo can connect through wireless. Now I listen to Pandora and Sirius XM on my stereo.
